 MORE.....The New Haven Railroad goes to war!!!


By the end of the War, 7315 brave employees of the New Haven Railroad served their country - 129 New Haven Railroaders made the ultimate sacrifice for their Country during World War 2. And home they came. Back to the railroad yards, railroad stations, towers, offices, shops, and all along the main lines and branch lines. Back to the New Haven Railroad.

One of my mentors, Conductor William "Bill" Mullally, was a decorated veteran of World War 2.
Like most war hero's, Bill never really talked about his war experience, but we found out a few years after his passing that he was indeed a true hero, wrapped up right in the middle of the hell and mayhem. After World War 2, Bill went "braking" on the New Haven and a few years later, "re-upped" to fight in the Korean War.
